RE:     NATIONAL PRAYER FOR TEACHERS

 

Reverend Monsignori and Fathers:

Greetings of Peace!

The CBCP Permanent Council has favorably recommended the observance of the National Teacher’s Day. Hence, during their meeting held last September 18, 2019, the request of the Metrobank Foundation for an endorsement of the National Prayer for Teachers was presented and approved.

In this regard and as per invitation from the CBCP Permanent Council, our bishop, Most Rev. Jesse E. Mercado, D.D. is requesting your Reverences to read the attached PRAYER FOR TEACHERS on all Sunday Masses of September 22 and 29, 2019 and on Saturday, October 5 (National Teachers’ Day) in your respective parish.

 

Let us continue to glorify God through our lives. Thank you.

 

Sincerely yours,

(sgd.)REV. FR. CARMELO O. ESTORES

Chancellor

 

 

Attached: Prayer for Teachers

PRAYER FOR TEACHERS

God of wisdom,

greatest Teacher of all,

look with love and kindness

on teachers everywhere.

Give them strength of body,

largeness of hearts

and soundness of mind

so that they may perform

their task with vigor, competence,

compassion and patience.

Help them to be committed

to their mission

to shape the tender minds

of the young in the knowledge

of the truth, the love for your creation

and the value of peace in this world.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.  Amen
